Novak has a good serve, but it isn't amazing so I think he will have a harder time winning multiple US Opens.

Having said that, I like Nole's chances at the US Open this year. He's the best hard court player in the world right now and I'm not sure Del Potro is back to his old self just yet. Once Del Pony gets there though, he will become a major threat at the US Open. IMO anyway.
LOL........no he wont........and tell me you registered in 2010 and started posting like crazy just now?

Congrats to Roger Federer on his 17th record breaking GS title and becoming the best player that ever played on grass and breaking number 1 record.You deserve it Roger

Even though Nole has got his best record at AO, I still think USO is the tournament where he consistently plays his best tennis and he's always made semis or finals pretty much. He's just been unlucky to encounter JesusFed on three straight occasions when he was still a rookie. But I think his game is pretty solid there and where he definitely plays his best. USO suits his game perfectly.

You really don't think Del Potro can get back to his 2009 form? I think he is very dangerous on fast hard courts. He has excellent movement for someone his size and his serve is downright nasty.

I've lurked for a long time. Post when I feel like posting, usually in very short spurts. It takes very little time for me to get fed up will all the hating and blind fan boy bias on this site, and I just stop posting after awhile. I can only handle so much of it before I feel like my time is better spent doing something else.

He's the best hard court player in the world right now. So I expect solid US Open showings from him for the foreseeable future. I think his ROS and ground game are his strongest points, which is why I feel like his record at the AO is better (where those things are even more potent). Just my opinion.

Of course.

He has everything to do well at the USO (not that he didn't already prov it), great serve, tremendous forehand, and as you said, he moves very well for his size.

No such thing as a fluke slam win. Can't happen. He demolished Nadal and then beat Federer. Fluke my ass.

You do realize he had wrist surgery right?

He's already 25. And yeah, 8 isn't happening. I can see 4 or 5. He could have longevity like Agassi though, you never know. Agassi won at age 33. Oldest guy to win a slam I believe. But Agassi was the shit.

Agassi spent half his twenties injured or not playing. The mileage Nole has in comparison is obscene.

Re: Will Nole win 7 AO's?

Exactly (about Agassi). I didn't even follow tennis when he was young but even I know that he took breaks between his slams due to different factors. Agassi winning slams deep in his 30s was due to him slacking in his 20s and not amazing longevity although he did work very hard to stay fit.

With nasty you mean horrible, right?

His serve is terrible for a guy his size. Even when he won the US Open, he had to basically fight for every point in the final, got pretty much no free points on serve. It's definitely an area where he has to improve tremendously. A guy his size shouldn't be serving like a WTA player, I'm hoping to see improvements on the serve asap. I'm not asking him to serve like Isner or Karlovic, but there's no reason why someone his size can't get one or two free points per service game at least.

Re: Will Nole win 7 AO's?

NO! Rather than 7 AO titles I am sure he would rather win 1 or 2 FO, another 2 Wimbys and 2 more USO titles, though I am sure he would settle for just 7 AO. If he would only learn to become a better volleyer and come to the net more, he could win another 5-7 slams.

Del Potro has a great serve, but considering his height it should be A LOT better.
